He says sexism but I think its more objectification like others have pointed out. Harrington is right though, actors and actresses are objectified in our society based on their looks.
As discussed in a previous WildCards in regards to sexuality, objectification happens at some level between men and women.

Feminists completely fail at science. They observe something, make up a hypothesis, & than they fail to test that hypothesis. Most of their hypothesis’s are nonfalsifiable, but the ones that are, are never tested rigorously or cogently. The problem with most feminist “research” is they just look for instances of it occuring & then saying that proves society is sexist. They never prove it’s sexist, they just prove instance of what they have defined have occurred. E.g every Anita video ever. Damsel’s in distress is sexists, because I find find many example of damsel’s in distress. That isn’t an argument.
Feminists don’t understand how to check their biases. They don’t ask “if” something is sexist, they ask “how” something is sexist. Cause they work off the modus operandi that society is sexist & everything is sexist, they keep coming up with more & more convoluted theories to justify feminism continuing to exist. Manspreading, mansplaining, & the male gaze are all unfounded feminist theories that demonstrate how half-baked feminism’s core issues have become.
